POLITICS CAN DIVIDE A COMMUNITY.
BUT, PEOPLE IN SMALL TOWNS IN EASTERN WASHINGTON TEND
TO AGREE MORE THAN THEY DISAGREE.
TAKE CRESTON, FOR EXAMPLE...
THE TINY TOWN ON HIGHWAY 2 WEST OF SPOKANE IS CERTAINLY
BUT ONE MAN ISN'T GOING TO LET THAT STOP HIM FROM
EXPRESSING HIS DEMOCRATIC VIEWS.
EVEN WHEN THIEVES WANT TO SHUT HIM DOWN.
DREW REEVES INTRODUCES US TO ONE MAN - FIGHTING TO
MAKE HIS VOICE HEARD.
BLINK AND YOU MIGHT MISS THE TINY TOWN OF CRESTON.
TUCKED INTO LINCOLN COUNTY.
CRESTON HAS THREE OPERATING BUSINESSES.
THE POST OFFICE, TOWN HALL, AND THE CORNER CAFE.
EVERYONE HERE KNOWS EVERYONE.
:02 - :04
There's a lot of different walks of life out here
and everybody thinks differently.
BUT, THE VAST MAJORITY VOTE REPUBLICAN.
TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE POLITICS OF LINCOLN COUNTY.
70 PERCENT OF VOTERS HERE PICKED MITT ROMNEY IN 2012.
:21 - :24
Being a Democrat in Lincoln County, we're pretty much
DARREL BROWN ISN'T MOST PEOPLE.
:21 - :23
We've always had the Democrat persuasion.
PASS BY DARREL'S HOME.
AND THERE WILL BE NO CONFUSION WHICH CANDIDATES HE
:09 - :19
I feel very strongly in this particular cycle about
Hillary Clinton, who I believe is the only candidate
and has been for this particular office this year.
BUT HIS SIGNS.
MAY NOT BE SO WELCOME IN THIS SMALL TOWN.
:12 - :15
They weren't up very long and they started to disappear.
THIEVES STARTED SNATCHING DARREL'S SIGNS.
SO HE TOOK HIS CONCERNS TO THE SHERIFF.
THE SIGNS STAYED PUT.
BUT JUST TO BE SURE.
DARREL TOOK AN EXTRA MEASURE TO MAKE SURE HIS SIGNS
WOULD BE SAFE.
:05 - :00
When you're a Democrat living in Republican territory,
zip ties are a necessity.
HE MAY NOT SHARE THE VIEWS OF HIS FELLOW CRESTONITES.
:12 - :14
Anybody but Hillary.
BUT DARREL WON'T LET THAT STOP HIM FROM DISPLAYING
HIS BELIEFS PROUDLY FOR ALL TO SEE.
:32 - :42
Signage that I have up here that says dump Cathy McMorris
Rodgers, I've had continually here posted here in
Creston, with a little controversy, if you will, since
BUT EVEN WHEN HIS NEIGHBORS DON'T AGREE.
DARREL SAYS HE'S ALWAYS UP FOR A GOOD CHAT ABOUT POLITICS.
